“I offer this collection of photographs with respect and encouragement to each person beginning to find his or her way in photography, and to each casual photographer who records family events, pets, and trips,” Volk writes on his website.
Volk was born in Dallas in 1928. He graduated from Phillips Academy at Andover in 1945, from Yale University with a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies in 1949, and from MIT with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1959. He served in the U.S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps from 1952 to 1955. He has earned numerous photography awards and recognition.
“The images are more than visual, they are loaded with content, stories, and evoke emotions rarely projected. This is much more than a collection of excellent photographs; in a quiet way it tells the story of everyday with high drama.” -Hal Box, FAIA Former Dean of the School of Architecture The University of Texas at Austin
‘Throughout Volk’s photographs and writings, he couples the outer act of gazing with an inner search for meaning. What Volk accomplishes in his work is a graceful but penetrating movement through the world-whether in New England or Japan, Paris or Dallas. And true to his first artistic inclinations, as evident here from over 50 years ago, he continues to remain open to truth and beauty wherever it may be found.” -Darius Himes Author of Publish Your Photography Book
